The Mentalist takes top honors for the week. Please note that the absence of an 18-49 ranking merely means the show was not among the top twenty-five shows (all we saw data for) among 18-49 year olds. The top twenty rankings for 18-49 year olds are different enough from this list that you might want to give it a look...
